    I could never get my drive to be read by the ps3 when it had 2 partitions on it. I was doing the same, 1 fat32 and 1 ntfs. Now that im only using fat32 its fine! Just hope sony see fit to add ntfs support in an update! Its a pain being restricted to filesizes of under 4gb

    I have managed to use a drive with two partitions (1 NTFS 1 FAT32). NTFS partition is of course not visible for PS3.

    fat 3t and ntfs are microsoft property

    i doubt they will let it use ntfs that would be unethical, maybe they should let it read linux ext2 partitions i would happily reformat my external to ext2.

    I know most OS's (other than windows) can't write to an NTFS partition but they can read them.

    I wonder why Sony does not want NTFS reading.

    I can understand not writing to NTFS, but the PS3 should at least be able to read NTFS.
